    • Abstract:
      Introduction: The perineal groove is a very uncommon anorectal anomaly. It is the result of an unknown embryology anomaly. The perineal groove is a wet sulcus extending from de fourchette to the anus. It is a benign pathology and tends to resolve spontaneously. Objective: We report two cases of girls diagnosed with perineal groove and their follow up. Cases reports: The first case is an 18 days old baby girl, that during her first clinical examination there was found a painless lineal lesion in the perineum from the fourchette to the anus, which created a big anxiety in her family. She was cared at the Pediatric Gynecology Unit, with local lubrication, doing well with the epithelization of it. The second case is an 8 year-old girl who consulted because, when being a child, she was diagnosed with a perineal lesion, but she didn't receive any special treatment and now she feels some aches in the perineum. Conclusions: The perineal groove is a benign entity pretty unknown by general practitioners or pediatricians. It is important to be up to date with this condition to avoid alarming misinterpretations. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
    • Abstract:
      Introducción. El surco perineal es una malformación poco frecuente, de etiología desconocida, consiste en una ranura en la línea media del periné desde la horquilla vulvar al ano, es benigna y tiende a la resolución espontánea. Objetivos: Reportar el diagnóstico y evolución de dos pacientes con surco perineal. Casos Clínicos: Caso 1. Recién nacida de 18 días que previo al alta de maternidad se pesquisó una lesión lineal no dolorosa desde la horquilla vulvar al ano, lo que generó gran inquietud en su familia. En Ginecología Infantil se confirmó el diagnóstico, se manejó con lubricación del área genital evolucionando a la epitelización del surco. Caso 2. Niña de 8 años consultó por que en controles de salud se diagnosticó una "fisura" entre la horquilla vulvar y el ano que no fue tratada y presentaba molestias inespecíficas en el periné. Se indicó resección quirúrgica, pero paciente evolucionó satisfactoriamente con lubricación de la zona. Conclusiones. El surco perineal es una entidad benigna que debe ser conocida por médicos de atención ambulatoria debido a la alarma que pueden generar sus diagnósticos diferenciales. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
